The Alamo invites you to kick off the holiday season at the opening night of Alamo Lights, a dazzling after-hours experience that will delight visitors of all ages!

Starting Friday, November 24, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., the beautiful Alamo grounds will be decorated with festive lights that illuminate the gardens. The majestic trees will be wrapped with breathtaking lights while larger-than-life light-decorated figures of Alamo Defenders watch over the historic site.

As a special opening night treat, singers from Opera San Antonio will perform starting at 6:15 p.m. Additionally, members of the Alamo's Living History team will be on hand to showcase traditional games from the 1800's.

Alamo Lights will continue on select nights throughout the holiday season. Visitors can reserve tickets online to ensure the best choice of dates. Tickets cost $5 for adults and $4 for children ages 12 and under. Discounts are available for Friends of the Alamo members as well as active-duty service members.

As part of Alamo Lights, we invite Alamo enthusiasts across Texas and around the world to honor or remember a loved one with a luminaria at the Alamo. Luminarias will be displayed around the green lawn in front of the Alamo Church during our Lights of Tribute event from Friday, December 15, through Sunday, December 17.

Luminarias can be purchased online with a donation of $10 or more to the Remember the Alamo Foundation. All tributes that are ordered on or before December 14 will be listed on our Tributes page. Lights of Tribute can be viewed in person or online via the Alamo Plaza Live Cam.

Come revel in the magical joy of the holidays at the Alamo!
